Mumford & Sons Announce 'Johannesburg' EP

During their first tour of South Africa earlier this year, Mumford & Sons recorded an EP featuring Senegal's Baaba Maal, South Africa's Beatenberg and London via Malawi band The Very Best.

They recorded the songs while on tour in the country and in June will release the EP, Johannesburg.

In a press release, the band said: "The South African Broadcasting Corporation had a room. It had two. Literally, two rooms. A few corridors away, and around the corner. It was a magnificent building though, all imposing wood panelling and endless corridors leading to more corridors. It had something a bit brutalist about it. It had a vibe."
